look what santa brought to town...



yea baby. i have had a caramel machiado already. and they have only been open for 3 hours! we are surely doing the happy dance. i am becoming a coffee expert as we have one of those fancy Starbucks coffee machines at church and i am a trained barista. so i know all about foam and froth and crema and pucks and cappuccino's and lattes. and i LOVE working there. i make all sorts of artistic motives on the coffees with the caramel. fun.
today i woke up and i am THANKFUL. God is good in my life. i am loved. i am forgiven. i am free to LIVE LIFE. you see this book in the sidebar? PLEASE get it and read it. i read it. Jaku is reading it. It's changing our lives and our outlook BIG time. i know it is true. Why? because i recognise the voice that spoke to her. i know His voice. i cried and laughed and in the end desired NOTHING more than to know Him like she knows Him. For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly]. I prayed and asked God to use me in any way to further His kingdom. And if i can get you to read this book i am doing just that.

you wonder where i get all these passages from? HERE.

Jenny! you left me a comment to visit your blog... please email me a link!

here are pics of Tia and Kirstin that i took this morning. We had parent/teacher conferences and i only heard praise for my girls. I am thankful for that. I love them. Seriously. Any way, Tia got a make-a-bracelet-kit and Kirstin got this t-shirt that tells you EXACTLY who she is. There's a little bragging for ya!



proud mama love and kiss...
